WWW Wednesdays are hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading.To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
* What are you currently reading?
* What did you recently finish reading?
* What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading?
Simon Scarrow – The Legion
Yes, I’m still reading this one. It’s taking a while, not because it’s not good (it’s fabulous, actually), but because it’s the hardback I’m reading in bed, and I’ve been exhausted by bedtime lately. It’s a bit big to carry around in my handbag (that’s reserved for paperbacks), so it stays home and waits for me to be awake enough to read in bed. I think it should be finished by next week though…
Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell – Barnaby Grimes 2: Return of the Emerald Skull
I picked this up from the library at the weekend and it’s now my handbag book, despite being a hardback, because it’s a small one. I enjoyed the first book in the series, so I’m hoping this sequel will be just as good.
What did you recently finish reading?
Alex Scarrow – TimeRiders
I’m a huge fan of Simon Scarrow, and I’d been meaning to give his brother, Alex, a try for ages. Well, I finally did and I wasn’t disappointed! I don’t read an awful lot of sci-fi, especially if it features time travel, because I very easily get frustrated when authors ignore time paradox (honestly, I find it absolutely maddening!), but Scarrow handles it well and the fact that both the characters and plot are well-written and exciting helps a great deal! If you’re into sci-fi and time travel, don’t let the fact that this is from the teen/young adult section put you off – it’s well worth picking up!
What do you think you’ll read next?
Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell – Barnaby Grimes 3: Legion of the Dead
I’ll be continuing with the Barnaby Grimes series…
Julia Golding – Cat Among the Pigeons (Cat Royal 2)
Another continuation after reading the first in this series last month…
I know I said last week that I was going to read The Crimson Petal and the White next, but as I got seven books out of the library, I figured I’d better read those first, so I can finish them all before the return date at the end of the month!
